Padres' Glenn Otto: Claimed by Friars
The Padres claimed Otto off waivers from the Rangers on Thursday.
Otto was DFA'd by Texas on Tuesday after accumulating a 10.13 ERA and 1.88 WHIP through 10.2 innings in the majors. However, he's been solid in Triple-A with a 3.38 ERA and 1.07 WHIP through 29.1 frames, so the Padres will take a flier on him as a bullpen depth piece. Ben Gamel was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Glenn Otto: DFA'd by Texas
The Rangers designated Otto for assignment on Tuesday.
The 27-year-old posted a 10.13 ERA in 10.2 frames for Texas this season and has now lost his spot on the 26-man and 40-man rosters. Otto made 27 starts for the Rangers last season and had a 4.64 ERA, but he's been working out of the bullpen for the big club in 2023.... See More ... See Less

Otto was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock on Monday.

Rangers' Glenn Otto: Heads to Triple-A
The Rangers optioned Otto to Triple-A Round Rock on Sunday.
Otto will cede his spot on the 26-man active roster and in the bullpen to right-hander Owen White, who was called up from Triple-A in a corresponding move. After being activated from the 60-day injured list June 30, Otto made four relief appearances and gave up 10 earned runs on 10 hits and five walks over 8.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Glenn Otto: Activated from injured list
The Rangers activated Otto (lat) from the 60-day injured list Friday.
Otto has been on the shelf all season with a right lat strain and will now rejoin the Rangers' pitching staff. He looked good during his rehab assignment, surrendering three runs on six hits while striking out 14 batters and walking only one across 10 Triple-A innings. Given the strength of Texas' rotation, it's likely he'll be relegated to the bullpen -- even if the team chooses to run with a six-man rotation, he'd have to compete with Cody Bradford for the final spot....

Rangers' Glenn Otto: Excels in latest rehab outing
Otto (lat) struck out three over three scoreless innings in his second rehab start Sunday with Triple-A Round Rock. He allowed one hit and no walks in the 44-pitch outing.
The 27-year-old has been on the shelf since late in spring training due to the right lat strain, but he's looked strong in both of his first two rehab outings with Round Rock. He's covered three innings in both appearances, striking out seven batters in total while having yet to issue a walk. The Rangers don't have a spot available for Otto in the big-league rotation at the moment, so once his 30-day rehab window elapses, the right-hander could get optioned to Round Rock upon being activated from the 60-day injured list....

Otto (lat) allowed two runs on two hits while striking out four over three innings in a rehab outing for Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday.
Otto began his rehab assignment Tuesday, and the right-hander threw 36 pitches (25 strikes). The Rangers will build up his strength, and Otto could eventually rejoin the team's starting rotation. With Jacob deGrom (elbow) headed for Tommy John surgery, there's room. Dane Dunning has been filling in, but his last three starts (5.74 ERA, eight walks) were rocky.... See More ... See Less

Otto (lat) is set to begin a minor-league rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Round Rock.

Rangers' Glenn Otto: Gives up first-inning runs
Otto allowed two runs on one hit and one walk while striking out five over two innings in Friday's spring game against Kansas City.
Otto opened the game with a four-pitch walk to Bobby Witt, who later came around on Vinnie Pasquantino's home run three batters later. "It starts with throwing strikes," manager Bruce Bochy told Kennedi Landry of MLB.com. "That's the obvious. He's got great stuff. But he's got to pound the strike zone and throw quality strikes." The right-hander started 27 games for the Rangers in 2022, but he's not expected to return to the rotation after Texas added three veteran starters during the offseason. Otto could be a candidate for the bullpen, but a roster spot is not guaranteed.... See More ... See Less

Otto (7-10) got the win after he pitched six innings, giving up two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out five in Wednesday's season finale versus the Yankees.

Otto (6-10) gave up three earned runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out seven over six innings to take the loss in a 4-1 defeat against the Angels on Friday.
Otto racked up seven or more strikeouts for the fourth time this season but gave up a couple of home runs that ultimately led to him being saddled with his 10th loss of the year. The strikeout-heavy performance is an encouraging sign from Otto, who has a poor K/BB of 1.7 in 26 starts this season. The 26-year-old right-hander is tentatively expected to make his next start in the final game of the season against the Yankees.... See More ... See Less

Otto did not factor into the decision Saturday, allowing one run on three hits with one walk over 5.2 innings against the Guardians. He struck out three.
After walking Steven Kwan on four straight pitches to start the game, Otto went on to retire the next 12 batters he faced. His only major mistake on the night came in the fifth when he left a slider over the plate and served up a solo homer to Oscar Gonzalez to lead off the inning. The right-hander has earned a win in just two of his 12 starts since the All-Star break. He's projected to take the mound again next week against the Angels.... See More ... See Less

Otto didn't factor into the decision in a 3-2 win over the Marlins in the first game of Monday's doubleheader, giving up two runs on three hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out two.
The right-hander exited the game in line for his ninth loss of the year, but the Rangers' offense got going in the seventh inning. The quality start was Otto's sixth of the season, but three of them have come in eight outings since the beginning of August, a stretch during which he sports a 3.37 ERA and 33:20 K:BB through 42.2 innings....
